The THIS IS US: STORIES IN STILL PHOTOS exhibit officially opened Tuesday, May 11th, and will run until Friday, May 14th, at Burnaby Central. The theme of this exhibition was inspired by the stories that artifact tell, and with the intention of showcasing our shared and common humanity. Artifacts exist all around us and play a vital part in our living history. Students and staff at Burnaby Central were invited to photograph an artifact and to tell its story while considering the following: What memories of our cultural and family heritage exist within the objects of our lives? How does an artifact transcend time, revealing our collective memory? All of the submissions are deeply powerful and moving! Thank you all for your labours of love and being an essential piece towards bringing our shared humanity to life!
I would also like to give a big and warm thank you to all the teacher sponsors including Mr. Steko, Mrs. Morabito, Mr. Katsionis, Ms. Uhren and who helped make this exhibit possible…so thank you!!!
